Archive Dreaming Installation by Refik Anadol (Istanbul, Turkey)

Exhibition through June 11, 2017
SALT Gatala, Istanbul, Turkey

Commissioned to work with SALT Research collections, artist Refik Anadol employed machine learning algorithms to search and sort relations among 1,700,000 documents. Interactions of the multidimensional data found in the archives are, in turn, translated into an immersive media installation. Archive Dreaming, which is presented as part of The Uses of Art: Final Exhibition, is user-driven; however, when idle, the installation “dreams” of unexpected correlations among documents.
